Our trip overall was wonderful. The guide in Vilnius, Yulik, was fabulous! He was so knowledgeable and so accommodating that our stay in Vilnius was as perfect as we could imagine. The Hotel Conti was also fabulous. The accommodations and staff were simply wonderful. I think the hotel deserves more stars and Yulik is an absolute treasure!
We had a very nice guide in Krakow though he wasn't the one that you arranged originally. Apparently there was a last minute switch. The guide's name was Pawel (I have the last name at home). One difference between our experience in Vilnius and Krakow is that the tours with Pawel did not include any entrance fees which I thought should have been included as they were in Vilnius. Was I mistaken? I also had the impression that, although he was obviously very knowledgeable about facts in Krakow, he seemed less experienced with the whole process. The pension in Szczawnica was ok. Perhaps I expected more luxury for the price. The sheets didn't really cover the mattresses which were old and unattractive. However, the owner was very nice and the breakfasts were good.
My mother and father did the raft ride with us and it was outstanding. We had a terrific time in the town and found LOTS of relatives. Budapest was a beautiful city and reminded me of Paris. I would like to go back someday without my parents so that we could explore more of the city.
Thank you for all your help in making our travels to eastern Europe a great experience.
With best regards, Diana
